Last week, YIMBY featured a terrible new hotel coming to 525 Eighth Avenue, off the northwest corner of 34th Street and Eighth Avenue. A few blocks to the north and west, on the southwest corner of Ninth Avenue and 42nd Street, another architectural atrocity is getting ready to open its doors, at 577 Ninth Avenue, and Tectonic has the latest photos of progress.
As construction begins to make headway on new residential towers at 15 East 30th Street and 277 Fifth Avenue, just to the south, an actual supertall is in the works at 262 Fifth Avenue. Applications for the site were filed back in September of 2016, before it got a slight height boost to 1,001 feet. Now, demolition is complete on the site’s old occupant.
118 Fulton Street has been making swift progress over the past few months, and now, the 752-foot-tall tower has officially topped-out. Foundation work was still ongoing just over one year ago, with the 66-story building’s rise since then clocking in at an impressive pace of over one floor per week. SLCE Architects is behind the design for the project, which is being developed by Carmel Partners.
Back in 2015, YIMBY reported that the Stagg Group had filed new building applications for 2051 Ryer Avenue, in the West Bronx. Since then, the site went onto the market asking $1.45 million, and has evidently traded hands to Hercules Argyriou, of Ryer Avenue MM LLC/Mega Contracting Inc., which has filed new applications for a structure that is about 50% larger than the original. The building will rise 12 floors (as opposed to 13 previously), and total 66,615 square feet of residential space, to be divided between 86 apartments. That translates into an average unit of about 770 square feet, indicative of rentals. SLCE Architects is designing, and demolition permits for the site’s former occupant were filed in June of 2015.
When YIMBY last reported on the 30-story hotel under development at 143 Fulton Street, in August of 2016, foundation work was underway. Now, the new Financial District lodging has something to show for itself.
